FOTD: in honor of the Watch The Throne concert tonight — NARS Duo Eyeshadow in PARIS

last night, just as i was about to fall asleep, i got an email from my homegirl Miss Info, asking me if i wanted to join her tonight for the Jay-Z & Kanye Watch The Throne concert. my answer was simple: HELL ASS YES.

so this morning, while browsing through my NARS products for my makeup look, i decided it would be appropriate to try on the Duo Eyeshadow in Paris:

personally, i never really think of the city of Paris as such an asphalt city (in my memory, it seems more golden to me), but this duo is pretty elegant and refined. the left is a sheer, lightly shimmered silver, to the right is a matte grey.

what was unexpected about this Duo, however, was the dark grey shade: it wasn’t a black/grey, but it was a gorgeous dark, taupey grey.  the silver counterpart was also not too “white” or cold — they were perfect compliments.

i kept the rest of the look simple, with my new stable of “classics” from NARS:  the Larger Than Life Eyeliner in Via Veneto, Orgasm Blush and Easy Lover Lip Gloss. :)
